MESSAGE FROM THE P.E. DEPT. ON GUM SHIELDS

The Rugby season will start in September and now is the time to start thinking about gum shields. Wearing custom fitting gum shields is strongly recommended whilst playing contact sports and we have invited the dental mouthguard organisation, O-Pro, to come to school in September to take impressions.

The quality of the individually named mouthguards is excellent. The mouthguard price also includes comprehensive dental insurance in the event of injury.

A range of mouthguards supplied by O-pro are on sale at EARLY YEARS, Stratford Road, Shirley, SOLIHULL.

Mr Duncan, Head of P.E., will distribute leaflets on the evening of induction. Please read the leaflet carefully as you will need to use it to reply and order directly to O-Pro. Remember your order must be placed with O-Prp and not with the school.

O-Pro strongly urge you to reply early. Pupils who turn up on the day may still be seen but htis will cause considerable delays. So please send in your forms to O-Pro as soon as possible.

Why not find out more about O-Pro and order online by visiting their web site at http://www.opro.co.uk
